It’s great to get away and have time to reflect. That’s what vacations are for in my opinion. This past vacation was no exception. We stayed at a beach resort condominium that pretty much catered to our every need. The ocean view was fantastic. There was no schedule, no place we had to be. We could just do as we please.
We walked along the beach, laid out on the sand in chairs and umbrellas setup by the nice cabana boy. We drove on the beach, swam in the pool, sunned ourselves by the pool. Whatever we wanted to do…we did it. During the afternoon thunder showers we hung out together in a cozy one bedroom condo on the sixth floor. In the evening we went out to dinner and ate at the best restaurants in town. We went shopping at the souvenir shops. Oh…and I bought a ton of fireworks! (That’s another story there.) Then we came back and sat in the hot tub.
When it came time to leave we were both pretty bummed. But by the time we made it back (after a six hour drive), we were both exhausted and glad to be home.
Although it was great to get away for awhile I began to realize how good it feels just to be home. That evening I sat in my chair and began to think of all the things I like about being home. There are a lot of things…too many to list. But three things immediately came to mind.
1. My dog…I missed my dog!
2. Direct TV – I love having my DVR and The Guide!
3.Slow-Close toilet seats – I can’t tell you how many times I slammed the one at the condo thinking it would close slowly.
